Super Quick Valentine's treat

A few weeks for the Super Bowl party I bought some Valentine's candy with the intent to package it in a pretty way and give it and some assorted football gear away as a door prize. Well, the game was more than a bit nerve racking and needless to say, everyone left and I still had a ton of candy.

No problem, right? I'll give it away to my employees. I only have 3 direct reports and I can make it all pretty and make a card... Again, time slipped away. I think it was all the planning for the giant hero....
Well, I get home from stamp club last night, take a shower and CRAP!!! I need to package up that candy and pass it out. I was more than tired, but it still needed to look good. I have a reputation to uphold, right??
I grabbed some buckets from the Target dollar spot that were sitting on my shelf and filled it with some red crinkle paper. I had some chocolate covered pretzel sticks (again from Target) that I had been planning on packaging as gifts. (Yep, that's what I said as I was putting them in the cart...) I took 2 and tied them with some red ribbon and threw in some of the left over candy.
Of course I needed a tag to go with it. I pulled out the "Birds and Bees" set by Kim Hughes at Cornish Heritage Farms I stamped the bee, colored him with Copics and cut him out. I also scored a set of tag dies from SU! at stamp club. I ran them through my cuttlebug and got these super cute tags. Then I stuck the bee on with a dimentional.
Punch a tiny hole and I attached it to the ribbon with some Crafter's Floss. Here's a close up! Alright all! Have a great night!!!
